Hi deebie,

I'm not familiar with that bulb at all, so did a little searching. No zone info found, but found where a member in NC was trading them. You might try emailing him for more info, and his zone.

RE: Haemanthus

Well...if you mean Scadoxus multiflorus, which used to be included in the genus Haemanthus, mine winter over here just fine, as long as they're in a spot where water drains rapidly during the winter months. They are summer/autumn growers which bloom at the beginning of their growth cycle, around July 1 here, and they enjoy our generally warm, extended autumn growing season. The true Haemanthus species tend to be winter growers, so I haven't tried any of them in the ground yet.
